Las Posadas Navideñas: A Personal Video

Today officially marks the day that las posadas navideñas begin. I'm a bit nostalgic thinking about - and missing - the posadas of my childhood. I'm sad, too, that this is not something my children get to experience now. I toyed with the idea of throwing my own posada, but there is only one other Latina in this area - and she's from Colombia, so I'm not even sure she'd know the melody of the song traditionally sung. :(

So instead I must be content to present the tradition to my children through videos and books. As I end this year's series on las posadas, I want to leave you with this beautiful video by my friend, Maura, of The Other Side of the Tortilla. If you stop by her site, you can read more about the history of the tradition.

May you all have a lovely weekend!
